  1. I have been looking at charge controllers for a starter PV system and with a
    mind to Add both Wind and Hydro later.
    ( would need a dump for them )

    I am looking for thoughts and options both good and bad and even comparable
    controller recomendions

    I will run at 24 volt but am forced to start 12V for now later the system
    will have a 48 V input hopefully

    the start solar will be 2 80 watt PV panels though in to 2 X 12V deep cycle
    or biting the bullet may just do 4 golf batts
    so allots up in the air

    the question is on Charge controllers for now

    I was to buy something I wont get stuck with later so that's why 40Amp
    I don't want anything potted as I cant repair when and if that time comes
    NEMA 1 fits the bill here

    please let me know Pros & Cons
    that you have had and if you have any retired equipment that might fit my
    app please let me know

    Ah, I see you have made a choice as to your method.

    I suggest you buy the cheapest of everything. That way you won't be out
    much money when you get sick of solar and decide it does not work.
